Small Is Festival 2012
Friday, August 31, 2012 at 5:00 PM - Sunday, September 2, 2012 at 5:00 PM (BST)
Rugby, United Kingdom
The ‘Small is...’ festival is a weekend of workshops, talks, music, and other outdoor activities. Hosted by charities Practical Action and Engineers Without Borders (UK), this year’s festival will bring together the curious minds of experts, activists, students and families from around the world. Together we will share, learn and be inspired by sustainable living, international development, and appropriate technology.
Based on the principles of E. F. Schumacher the ‘Small is...’ festival will host a series of events including topical debates, lectures from inspirational and accomplished speakers, and workshops which offer a hands-on approach to mastering a diverse range of practical skills from yurt-building and constructing solar panels to advice on securing a career in the development sector.
This year’s theme is ‘Power to the People’... together over one summer weekend, we will create, debate, and share the evolution of our thinking. You don’t need expertise or experience to get stuck in, and with a wide range of activities accessible to all we are open to anyone who wants to be involved!
